Yul Edochie, the Nollywood actor, has argued that he faced similar challenges to what Mohbad experienced before the singer passed on.
The circumstance surrounding his death has continued to spark controversies on social media.
This is just as Nigerians — including celebrities — are demanding for justice for the late singer.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the actor said fake stories were spread about him on social media but none of his colleagues came to his defence.
Yul also called out actors who are demanding justice for Mohbad, referring to them as “hypocrites” and “clout chasers”.
“All of una wey dey post Justice for Mohbad, plus the Nollywood people wey join una dey shout am, you’re not different from the people that were maltreating Mohbad,” he wrote.
“You’re all demons and wicked people, simply chasing clout. You’re all the same people who have been insulting me for over one year.
“Bullying me on the internet, trying so hard to kill me for matter wey no concern una. Simply because I took a personal decision for my life that is not your business.
“How many of you fought for Mohbad when he was alive? Now that he’s dead you’re using him to draw traffic to you page. Useless people.
“For one year blogger’s have been telling all sorts of lies against me. Everybody turn to blogger for my case. Spreading fake stories about me on Facebook just to make money.
“Telling lies just to destroy my name. On top of matter wey una know nothing about. Just because men don’t talk. None of you know what I see in my home, that inspired my decision, idiots.
“What they did to Mohbad is what they’ve been doing to me on the internet for over one year.
“How many Nollywood people have come out to say ‘Enough’? You’re all waiting for me to die so you can post my picture and write your nonsense ‘Justice for …’.
The movie star also said when he lost his son, no one came “out to fight for justice”.
He added that the “bullying, insults, and curses” he received on the internet for a year “were enough to kill” someone.
“Na thunder go fire all of una. I lost my son. In the mist of unbearable pain, dem say na me kill my son. How many of una come out to fight for justice?” Yul asked.
“Even my own Aunty has not called me on the phone for one day to ask me what happened. Instead she dey use me draw traffic for her page.
“On top of matter wey no concern. On top of matter wey una no know as e take start or wetin dey happen inside house.
“Because a man would rather keep quiet and protect the image of his wife than spill unnecessary information.
“The bullying, insults, curses, etc I have received on the internet for over one year is enough to kill or drive to depression. But una no fit kill me.
“God made my head strong. 100 million of you demons no reach me. Whatever evil you wish me will follow you a thousand times. Witches and wizards.
“My point is simple, if you never posted Mohbad when he was alive, simply shut up and let his soul rest. Allow the police to do their job. As you don’t know all sides of the story.
“If you have money to spare, send to his family and console them. Stop chasing clout with his name. That’s what you all are good at. You fight the living and celebrate the dead. Walking demons.”
Edochie has continued to receive backlash since he unveiled Judy Austin as his second wife in April 2022.
